Accessory and peripheral maker Griffin Technology is now shipping its PowerDock 2, acharging base station for the iPhone and iPod family that offers two charging bays so users can charge multiple devices at the same time. The PowerDock 2 is compatible with iPhones and any iPod thatcharges via a Dock Connector.
The PowerDock 2 features a brushed aluminum frame with a bit of mass to it, along with a rubber base that helps ensure the PowerDock doesn’t slid around on a surface while users are adding and removing their devices. The PowerDock 2 comes with eight Universal Dock inserts for fitting a wide range of iPod models, and is certified by Apple as both a “Works with iPhone” and “Made for iPod” product. Unfortunately, the PowerDock does not offer USB connectivity: if you want to sync your devices, you’ll still have to hook them up to a computer.
The PowerDock 2 is available now for a suggested price of $49.99. A version capable of charging four devices at a time—presumably to be called the PowerDock 4—will be available soon at $69.99.
